Testimonials

Lanie has been wonderful throughout the past two months of working with her. We are first-time buyers in search of a two-bedroom/two-bathroom condo in Jersey City and we couldn’t have done it without Lanie’s expertise. She helped us figure what we want by showing us a great variety of properties until we found “the one.” Then she guided us through the purchase process with commitment to our needs and showed strategic expertise working with the seller’s agent, the attorneys, home inspector, etc, etc (she even had advice for a local painter and great local eateries). Lanie is a fantastic communicator, a capable negotiator, and extremely knowledgeable about Jersey City and Hoboken while always being wonderfully cheerful and thoughtfully patient. She answers every question with great care and offers honest, reliable, and encouraging advice. We felt there was a lot of mutual respect and that helped build a solid bridge of trust between us and Lanie, which is such a critical part of the realtor-client relationship. Lanie is pro in every sense of the word. We highly recommend her as an advisor, advocate, and all-around great realtor. We appreciate Lanie and we know that we’ll turn to her again in the future (and invite her to our housewarming party!). Thank you, Lanie!

Lanie is great. Her knowledge of the Hudson area was spot on, and her relentless effort was appreciated throughout the drawn out process. She kept calm during the buying process advised me on many decisions. Her positive/cheery attitude is such a pleasure to be around, and helps you de-stress from the overall process. Lanie worked long hard hours to get us everything we wanted. Truly appreciate all the work she did.
Thanks again Lanie. You rock!!!

I had the privilege of working with Lanie Von Ogden as my realtor. Her knowledge and patience were beyond my expectations. Her zeal for her career was amazing and it gave me hope in finding the perfect home, which we did. I appreciate her advice in the entire process and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lanie to anyone who is interested in buying a home.

After dealing with Lanie in 3 real estate transactions myself and my family would never think of dealing with anyone else. Lanie sold my grandmothers home approximately 4 years ago, not only did she treat my grandmother like she was her own, the whole transaction was treated with the utmost professionalism and entirely stress free. Lanie is honest, prompt, trustworthy and truly knowledgable in her field. My grandmother and her property could not be put in any better hands. After the home was sold Lanie found my grandmother an affordable apartment in the area within her budget, everything was arranged and taken care of. Recently Lanie found me an apartment, I don’t know what I would have done without her her skill and expertise made the whole experience pleasant as opposed to worrisome. She took the time to explain the lease and was prompt with paper work and showings. She was also so patient when I had questions regarding the lease and was happy to explain everything I was signing. I couldn’t imagine dealing with anyone else, I was put at ease and reassured every step of the way. Lanie is truly an asset to the real estate world….Honest, professional, patient, prompt and so knowledgable and as far as I am concerned is the only contact I need for my real estate needs.

Lanie is truly an outstanding realtor. It’s not easy to find someone in this industry who is trustworthy and knows the business well. She has helped us find great tenants on numerous occasions and also assisted with selling a property with a lot of “wrinkles” in the transaction. She is highly professional, dependable, and communicates honestly (even on tough issues). She has also gone above and beyond the call of duty to assist us when she didn’t have to do so. I highly recommend Lanie, and have referred friends and family members to her with successful outcomes.

Selling our 200 year old, single family, fully furnished home in 18 days, Lanie VonOgden was our dream realtor. Able to see past the angst and anguish of both buying and selling any home, she continually retained her composure and behaved like a level headed young adult with a terrific sense of humor. Keeping her eye on the prize, she dressed professionally, was always prompt, kept us informed while educating us along the way, was endlessly polite to both ourselves and potential buyers, returned our phone calls at any time of the day or night and addressed our every concern or question, no matter how big or how small.

Be it historically preserved townhouse like our own or a brand new high-rise penthouse in the sky, without hesitation, we would both recommend Lanie VonOgden’s fresh-faced, innovative real estate expertise to anyone purchasing or selling their next home.

Lanie helped us purchase our first investment property in Jersey City and was there throughout the whole process. She was very helpful and always went that extra mile to answer any questions or concerns that we had. Once we purchased the property, Lanie was also able to help us rent out the property within 2 weeks – and during the peak of the holiday season. We would definitely work with her again and have recommended her to our friends who are looking around the area.

– Larry L.


The words that come to mind when I think of my experiences in working with Lanie are: above and beyond, super responsive, on top of it, and go getter! Lanie has been my Realtor for the past five years. She guided me through the home buying process when I was a first time buyer and has subsequently helped me when I needed to rent my condo and then list it again. In the ever changing Hoboken real estate environment I found that having Lanie ‘on my side’ was a tremendous advantage. Her willingness to help, network of contacts and attention to detail set her apart. She is on top of it all, responds quickly to phone calls, emails and texts and keep you abreast of everything that is happening. I now live out of state, and my most recent transaction would have been an incredibly stressful and difficult had it not been for Lanie. I often found myself saying “wow she is good” and I never had to worry!

I have referred Lanie to my friends and I will continue to do so in the future. I would highly recommend choosing Lanie as your Realtor if you are looking for an outstanding professional , who is kind, considerate, and will get the job done!

As a family we hired Lanie to assist us in getting my grandmother’s house sold and get her moved into a nice apartment. My father and I are in Colorado and the move needed to happen in New Jersey, over 2,000 miles away. There was never once a point of frustration or inconvenience while working with Lanie, her communication with us was consistent, informative, frequent, and on multiple occasions she went well above and beyond the job scope. In the end Lanie negotiated hard and was a strong advocate for my grandmother when one client tried to take advantage of her and my grandmother sold her home for a fair price. On top of the sale price being what we wanted to get she also made sure that my grandmother was settled into a comfortable, clean, and affordable apartment. We were more than glad to have hired Lanie to assist us, in a world where distance can create dishonesty Lanie was professional and worked as diligently as if we were sitting across a desk from her.

I am more than happy to write this letter of recommendation, and if I ever have a need for a real estate agent in the New Jersey area again I will not hesitate to hire Lanie again.

Lanie has helped us find a 2 bedroom apartment in Hoboken late in 2011. Right from the beginning, Lanie clearly understood our specific requirements and had us only visit selected places which really corresponded to our expectations. We actually found our place at the 2nd visit… (we visited approx 6-7 places total). Lanie was also of big help when it came to the buying process since we were not familiar with it and in particular helped us handle the negotiation with the previous owner so that we could find an agreement within 1 day and sign a contract. Since we have moved in our new home (approx. 1 1/2 year), we haven’t regretted our choice one day and we are fortunate we have been able to find this place. We would definitely recommend Lanie to anyone looking for a home around here.
For the story, the ice on the cake was when we first came to our apartment after the closing and that we found a nice Champagne bottle that Lanie left us as a welcome present!

Lanie is always current with her knowledge of Hoboken real estate, and she’s very smart and intuitive when it comes to finding the right situation for your personal needs. She helped me find my condo in Hoboken five years ago and was wonderful to work with during the entire process. I will definitely call Lanie if I ever decide to move in the future!

– Ashley G.


I hired Lanie as both a buyer of an apartment and as a seller. Both times she impressed me with her abilities to manage the process smoothly and in an expedient manner. Lanie is also very personable and a pleasure to work with, and she definitely helped made both transactions a better experience. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the area and passionate about providing the best service. I would definitely recommend Lanie as your real estate agent of choice!

– Mihai P.


We contracted Lanie to list our Hoboken condo for rental in 2011. Our unit was listed and rented in less than 24 hours for more than our original ask amount. And, she found excellent tenants who are still occupying the unit to date. I would highly recommend her services for your real estate needs.
